Praise for Celebration

Trommer reveals light in the midst of winter’s, and the world’s, long night. Uplifting and elegant.

Inexplicably touching, and even a nod to the silliness of the season. These are poems for sharing. They all sound well read aloud with ample choice here to read one a night, and variety enough to go through them all in one sitting without boredom. Whether as a family advent calendar or a private moment of Christmas spirit, The Christmas Candle Book is sure to bring warmth to your holiday season.
